How long can you marinate pork ribs?

A:

Quick Answer

Marinate pork ribs no longer than five days in the refrigerator, assuming that the meat has not passed its sell-by date. However, although it is safe to marinate this long, meats can become mushy if an acidic marinade is used.

Full Answer

When marinating meats, use a glass or plastic bowl or a resealable plastic bag. Do not use aluminum foil or a metal bowl, as they may give the meat a metallic taste. Additionally, never reuse the marinade for other meat because the bacteria from the raw meat can cross-contaminate other food. Before using leftover marinade as a basting sauce, boil it for five minutes.

    How long do you boil ribs?

    A:

    According to Global Post, if ribs are boiled, the meat should be simmered for approximately 45 minutes on medium-low heat. However, spareribs do not have to be boiled as a preparation for grilling or barbecuing the meat. Global Post explains that while boiling reduces grill time and increases the tenderness of the meat, much of ribs' flavors are lost during the boiling process.
